What Types of Allegations Are Being Made in Pradaxa Cases?
Pradaxa cases generally allege that Boehringer Ingelheim (the company that makes Pradaxa) negligently brought a risky drug to market and that this drug has caused serious, if not deadly, injuries.
Specifically, Pradaxa claims allege that Boehringer Ingelheim’s negligence involved failures to:
- Properly test the safety of Pradaxa
- Alert the public to the serious risks associated with Pradaxa
- Establish treatment protocols for Pradaxa-related bleeding events
- Properly label the drug, thereby misrepresenting its safety and effectiveness.
Thousands of Pradaxa claims have been filed since 2010, when the drug was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). While Boehringer Ingelheim has already paid out more than $650 million to settle various Pradaxa claims:
- Many Pradaxa cases are still pending in U.S. courts.
- New Pradaxa claims can still be filed against Boehringer Ingelheim.
How Much Is My Pradaxa Claim Worth?
The compensation available for Pradaxa claims will vary from case to case, depending on the specifics of a given claim. While an attorney at Bell & Pollock, P.C. can provide a more precise answer to this question, in general, financial recoveries for Pradaxa claims can include damages for (but not necessarily limited to):
- Past and future medical bills and treatment needs
- Past and future lost wages
- Permanent impairments
- Loss of consortium
- Pain and suffering.
In some cases, punitive damages may also be awarded for Pradaxa claims. These damages are typically reserved for cases associated with especially flagrant or egregious negligence.
